All prize money below has been converted from euros to dollars at the current exchange rate. In terms of euros, the prize money has been increased by 12.5% for the winners, runners-up and semifinalists, by 10.9% for the quarters, by 6.5% for the 3rd round, and by 5.9% for both the 2nd and 1st rounds in doubles play.
In dollar terms, though, all the prize money is down significantly from last year due to the euros massive drop in value vs the dollar.
